Chop a tank in half with this thing. 11.5 inches of very serious traction coated 1095 steel with 1.75 inches or serrations and a saw back. A whopping 3/16 inch thick! Sweet black linen micarta contoured handles fit the hand sure and comfortably. Excellent kydex sheath with a rotating belt clip and secondary retention bungee lanyard and spring clip. TOPS logo etched in the handle. Excellent used condition. Shows signs of use with minor scuffing to the blade coating and darkening of the micarta handle scales. Cut, hack, and chop till your arm falls off with this one. Excellent camping, survival, tactical, or combat knife. Run a camel jockey plumb through with a blade of this size and heft...or don't even bother getting that close and split melons or chop wood at base camp with it. I really love the design and heft of this bad boy, but after lugging it around for a day at the office (kidding) I decided I have to get the shorter version. 7" should be plenty--I was in the USAF, not the Marines. Love the design--don't need that much steel. Ships priority in a medium flat rate box and I'll pack it well. $160 shipped via paypal personal or MO. $165 via paypal regular (I'll eat a little of the fees). $20 extra for international to countries and names I am not prejudice against. TRADES--I shouldn't, but it is so dang much fun--just pm me your offer.
